Air Asia X pilot suspended after Facebook post on MH370

PETALING JAYA: An Air Asia X senior first officer has been suspended from the low-cost-carrier after posting up a public message on Facebook denying the crash of MAS flight MH370 and suggesting that the Government was hiding information pertaining to the airliner.

Air Asia CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes confirmed the suspension late Tuesday night via twitter, stating that it had been handed down pending investigation as the first officer had broken company policies.

AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani explained in reply MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan comment in Fernandes’ post that the suspension was given not due to a specific company policy but in light of sensitivities surrounding flight MH370.
